Katt found a place to hide as she transforms. When she came out; ready to fight, she gave a sigh of irritation as she saw the pompus silver-blue furred king that sends these creatures out into London.
“Oh gods, not you…”
“That’s right! I; The great and powerful Pyrus...King of the Void….is here to bring your doom!....what? You don’t seem impressed, Masked Moon. What? is this not scary?” Pyrus said as Katt looks unamused by this.
“Actually the huge furry creature is pretty great looking….you, like usual…. aren’t. You just remind me of a over the top silly villain i expect from a cartoon.” Katt said as Pyrus is taken back by her words.
“You silly magical mortal! I will show you that I am to be taken serious! My creature! Attack!” Pyrus hopped off of the creature onto a roof as it backed onto it’s back legs; a loud, deep roar bellowed out as it leaped at her.
Katt managed to dodge out of the way as it looked around itself to try and find her crushed remains. Katt let out a sigh of relief as she changed her wand into her sword and rushed in for the first attack. A loud cry of anguish came from the beast as Katt had managed to slice into it’s front leg. Katt jumped back and was ready to strike again when she noticed something different about this one as it plopped onto it’s back end and licked at it’s wound while it seemed to whimper.
“That’s….odd. Hmm….” Katt walked closer as Luc was rushing towards the scene and despite Luc telling them multiple times to stay home; Lexis and Sugure were running behind him.
“Katt! What are you doing?!” Luc called out as Katt had stopped in front of it.
“I don’t think he’s evil….at least I don’t think he wants to be….”
“You mean he didn’t attack you?” Lexis asked
“Well yeah, he did...but on Pyrus’s orders. After i got a good hit on it, he just sat down on his butt and tried to lick his wounds….usually his void creatures will keep attacking till it’s dead, but this one is different…” Katt said as she looked at it. “Hey big boy…..if I help heal you….will you stop attacking me?” Katt said as it looked at her and nodded. Katt went over and started healing the wound as Lexis rushed over and started petting it’s good leg.
“Aww, poor baby….you don’t really want to hurt anyone, do you?” Lexis asked as it shook his head. “Hey….i got a few muffins in my pockets….want one?” Lexis smiled as it nodded. Catching it in mid air as lexis tossed it. “You’re such a good boy!”
“Only Lexis would befriend a engineered furry void creature.” Sugure sighed. “But it is cute and doesn’t seem to present any of the qualities from other void creatures.”
“There….all done….you were a good boy.” Katt said it licked her as his way of thanking her. “You’re like a dog….but you’re welcome….”
“NO!” They heard as Pyrus rushed over from a nearby rooftop. “What do you think you are doing! Attack!” The furry creature turned towards him and growled; making Pyrus stepping back.
“What did you do to my creature?”
“I showed him kindness when i saw that he isn’t like your other ones….now you might want to go home before he decides that you're the target” Katt said as the beast started to move towards Pyrus.
“I’ll get you, Masked Moon! You shall rue the day that you humiliate me! Pyrus! King of the Void!...” Screaming as he ran back to his portal before it closed up. Katt sighed as she looked back up at the now happy furry beast.
“Now what to do with you….I can’t keep you here….People will notice a large furry snow creature once spring is here.”
“I know! He can come down to hell! Fluffy needs a friend” Lexis said as she looked at Luc.
“Hell might be too hot for him where Fluffy is….but I can have a couple of the generals come up and take him to the ice level. He can play and eat snow fish all day if he wants….I suppose i can introduce him to fluffy and if get along, can have them play together now and then….and at night during winter time can bring him up here to be around us….but for now we need to hide him till I get my generals here….and what to call him….well Masked Moon….you saved him….you name him...”
“Uh….alright then….how about Dane? Let’s see….hey big boy….you like Dane?” Katt asked as it smiled and licked her again. “I think he does….now to hide him before someone calls the cops….”
“I got it….come on Dane!” Lexis said as she started to run and Dane started to walk behind her.
After an hour and Katt had de-transformed; Katt, Luc and Sugure came out of the house to see that not only do they have enough room to be able to climb up the snow steps the girls had made, but that there’s a large cave like opening in the wall of the snow; where Dane is hiding near the open area in front of the door.
“So….basically you made a snow dog house for him?” Katt asked
“I had him dig enough of a area for him to dig a small home for him in the snow so no one would see him till your generals get here.” Lexis smiled
“Not a bad idea and since i was able to get a hold of two of my generals….they made a point that they’d have to make sure that the ice level of hell would be livable for him, they won’t be up here for a couple hours…so in the meantime this works….just….what to feed him….” Luc pondered a bit.
“He likes muffins so far.” Lexis smiled
“Where did you get muffins?” Katt asked curiously.
“In her pocket. She keeps a pack of pre packed mini muffins in her coat just in case” Sugure said as Lexis smiled and tossed Dane another one; eating the tiny muffin happily.
“Maybe...we should get him some fish since he’s going to be living in that snow level of Hell soon enough.” Katt suggested.
“True….well let me get a hold of one of my generals then and see if they’d bring some fish then.” Luc said as he gives one of them a call.
After a while and Lexis teaching Dane a couple of tricks, they heard a large plop in the snow and a young looking tanned fur mouse with a mohawk that looked like neopolitan ice cream, only without the vanilla coming down in torn jeans and a jacket.
“Hey boss. I got your fish. Want me to-oh! Why hello” He smiled as he noticed Katt. Lifting her hand in his and kissing it. “You didn’t tell me this... lovely lady was here….” He spoke as his eyes trailed up from her hand to her chest....then her eyes “my name is-ow!” he said as Luc pulled on the young man’s ear; pulling him away from Katt.
“That...is Katt...and stop flirting! That’s not why you’re here, Deus.” Luc said irritatingly
“Katt….wait…you mean that brat that you chased after a few years ago...ow! Stop with the pulling.” Deus winced as Luc pulled harder.
“She’s not a brat….and yes the same one...and no you can’t have her.”
“Aww….so wait….so you’re banging her then? Oh! You sly, Boss.” Deus smiled as Luc turned several shades of red.
“No! We’re just friends….the girls and I love her...as family.”
“As family….I’m sure you do..” Deus winked as Luc looked flustered
“So wait….Asmodeus?” Katt asked
“Yes, my dear. Like the Boss here though, we each have nicknames. Mainly for some of us it’s because we don’t care for our angelic names that was given to us. Luc is the only one that kept his nickname from back when he was an angel….”
“I never liked my first name...plain and simple…” Luc said as Deus smirked
So I go by Deus…” He smiled as he politely explained.
“That explains it….your sin in the classifications of demons is Lust….it explains why you got so easily distracted from your job by the appearance of someone new.” Katt said as Deus hung his head low.
“Well….she got you there, Deus. Anyway….the fish?”
“Right, boss.” Deus snapped his fingers and a fisherman’s net worth of fish appeared and dropped in front of Dane. Dane came out of his snow home; took one sniff and started eating. “So this is what Aba and I will be taking to the snow level then….he is lovely. I won’t mind watching over him.”
“Good….at least to make sure that he’s adjusting to the environment down there.” Luc said.
“Not a problem sir….so….do you have any lady friends that are attainable to me then? Since you put claim on this one.” Deus smiled as Luc rolled his eyes.
“I don’t have claim on her...but i know you….so you don’t get to lay claim on her...tracks of land as you have said in the past with other women.”
“And men….can’t forget the men.”
“Yes...and the men” Luc shook his head.
“Well then….I shall go help Aba out and get the job done….” Deus smiled as he bowed towards Katt. “My lady, it was a pleasure to meet you.” He snapped his fingers and disappeared
“Sorry about him, Katt...as you said...his sin is lust.” Luc said.
“As long as he isn’t that way when the girls get older…” Katt teased as Luc hadn’t thought about that possibility.
“I’ll roast him on a spit on the hottest fires of hell….” Luc sneered as the thought of Deus flirting with his daughters was burning inside; only to die when Katt threw a snowball at him. “Ack!”
“Will you chill out, Luc. You can worry about that stuff when the girls are in their second half of high school….plus what would you do if when they’re eighteen and they decide they want to date one of your generals?”
“No chance….they’re waaaaaay too old to date my daughters.” Luc said as he gathered some snow and threw it at Katt; nailing her on the side.
“I’m just saying….it’s possible” Katt smiled as she threw another snowball at him.
“Stop saying that. I don’t even want to think about them dating yet.” Luc said as he retaliated with another snowball.
Katt laughed as she threw another one and it went back and forth for a while till they both got nailed by a snowball and saw it was Lexis and Sugure with a pile of snowballs ready to be thrown.
After a couple of hours of playing in the snow. Katt and Luc were ready to call quits, but the girls weren’t as they threw another snowball and instead of hitting Luc, he ducked and Deus got hit in the face instead. Laughing her ass off was a bright red headed woman with light yellowish fur.
“Well laugh it up, fuzzball.” Deus said as he wiped the snow off his face.
“Happily….Good afternoon, boss. So where’s the snow puppy?” The woman said as she yawned.
“Down here….Katt, wanna call your puppy up?” Luc chuckled.
“Come on, Dane!” Katt called as the big furry puppy like creature jumped out and smiling.
“Whoa...you are big….and….warm...Mmm” the woman said as she hugged Dane till she started to snore.
“Aba! Wake up! Can’t be a sloth right now.” Luc said.
“Right….Think he’d let us ride him there? It’ll go faster.” Aba asked
“I don’t know, let me ask….Dane, will you let them ride on you to get you to your new home?” Just after Katt asked, she got an answer in the form of a sloberry lick. “Eww….okay, Dane. I get it….yeah he’ll let you ride….”
“Thank you...and my name is Aba...another one of the boss’ generals. Yours is Katt, right?”
“Yes...though….sorry if im being rude….i didn’t know Luc had a female general….that’s pretty cool actually.” Katt said as Aba smiled with joy and hugged Katt. “Ack!”
“I’m so glad you said that!”
“Uh….no problem….uh, do you mind….you’re hugging me still.” Katt said sheepishly as Aba blushed and let go.
“Not a hugger, are ya?”
"That’s….fine….come on Dane, let’s get you to your new home….before i fall asleep” Aba yawning as Dane lowered himself for Aba and Deus to climb on. “We’ll check on him for the next few days and make sure he’s doing alright.”
“Thanks, Aba.” Luc called out before Aba and Deus ride off on Dane and disappeared to Hell. “Okay, im ready to warm up now…” Luc said as he ushered the girls and Katt inside.
“So….Luc what was that about with Aba? I mean….is it that big of a deal down in Hell that there’s a female general?”
“It’s not necessarily that she’s a female general….it’s the fact you saw her as a female….she’s trans, Katt.”
“Oh, okay. She looks great, i would have never known that she was a guy before.” Katt said as Luc chuckled.
“If she heard you say that, she’d probably kiss you.” Luc smirked as Katt blushed.
“I don’t know about that…”
“Really? You’re blushing at the thought of her kissing you.” Luc teased as Katt pouted.
“Shut up. You would too if you thought someone might kiss you.” As soon as Katt said it, Luc’s thoughts went straight to that certain someone kissing him and turned bright red. “Holy….damn Luc, I didn’t say now.” Katt teased as Luc tried to shake it off.
“That’s only because you said that….plenty of people would want to kiss these lips.” Luc smirked
“I’m sure. Since I don’t see a line of men and women outside your door like a kissing booth, i’d say your lying….so who is it that you would want to kiss?”
“Buffy. She’s hot and slays the bad guys.”
“Figures….the devil wanting to kiss the girl that could kill him.” Katt chuckled as she hangs up her coat.
“Yeah….that….would be me.” Luc smiled sheepishly as he watched her walk away to the couch. “Why is it so hard not to look now….” Luc bit his lower lip as he took a deep breath. Following Katt to the living room, he saw Katt sitting on the couch with the girls; digging into the pizza.
“Come on dad, start the movie.” Lexis shouted.
“Alright, alright….I got A Muppets Christmas Carol in.”
“Great….so dad is gonna sing” Sugure said
“Hey….i sing with it too.” Katt said
“Are you as hammy as dad is?”
“Don’t know….you’ll just have to find out.” Katt chuckled as Luc got the movie playing for them.
Hours had passed as they watched two more movies afterwards and polished off the pizza and dessert. Katt went back to baking with the girls help as Luc went to finish his paperwork. It was the second batch that Katt had pulled out to cool when Luc came out. Leaning on the counter to see if he could steal a cookie when Katt’s spatula caught his hand.
“Stop stealing my cookies then.”
Luc shook his hand before rubbing the spot Katt smacked. “So I had a thought….”
“That’s a first…” Katt smirked as Luc shared one as well.
“Oh! Snarky….anyway, so let’s say your life is an anime….”
“I’m a magical girl soldier who’s best friend is the devil and i fight monsters that’s created by the most useless hammy villain i’ve had in my line of work.”
“Hey! I thought i was the hammiest.”
“You are, but when you were a villain, you were actually a threat...a big threat…”
“Aww, that’s sweet of you to say.” Luc chuckled as Katt rolled her eyes.
“Yeah, im sure, but...you’re not a villain anymore... your just hammy. Him on the other hand is a useless hammy villain. Only thing he’s useful for is making those creatures. That’s it. WIthout them, he has nothing….with that being said, i think i already live in an anime.” Katt said as she puts the now empty cookie sheet down to cool.
“True...so okay, what if someone took your life and turned it into an anime….what music would you have for certain levels of fights you have to fight?” Luc asked as Katt took a moment to think.
“Hmm...we’ll first of all a good chunk would already be from animes….but definetly….for that one fight that is so huge and there’s a zero point one percent that i survive….I’d put Skyfall for that one.”
“Oh! So like it would have to be like the biggest battle of the century and stuff, right?”
“Yeah and like there’s weapons and magic going everywhere and beating the big baddie is like life draining.”
“Okay….so what’s less than that?”
“Well….i think it would be that huge ass monster that can demolish a city and i would definetly not be able to do much of anything after that battle….like i’ll survive, but i would need an ambulance or absolutely great medical care…..I think Crazy Sunshine from Fooly Cooly “
“Well yeah, that anime is nuts and a lot of it is like that...I can see it.”
“Plus it’s an awesome song to fight giant monster to.” Katt said. “I’ve had that song back in high school play in my head when i’ve fought them.”
“That figures, you are a nerdy geek.” Luc chuckled
“You better believe it….and stop trying to steal my cookies!” Katt had smacked his hand again as she smirked.
“Right…so what about those single fights with the villain….like when you fought me? Where did i hit? And it’s okay if i was the Sephiroth song….i can see it.” Luc smirked.
“Pokemon theme song.” Katt said with a straight face as Luc looks at her like she just stomped on his heart. Though her smile broke out after a while. “I’m kidding, thought honestly I’m not sure….see I could see you singing something like Be Prepared from the Lion King, but I’m not sure what song i would have had when we fought.”
“Okay, okay….I get it. So what about when you’re fighting the regular monsters. What would you have?”
“I Think I Can….Fooly Cooly….”
“Well I hope if you get more fights in you come up with a longer playlist.”
“Yeah, yeah. I’m suppose to be retired, you know.” Katt said as she got the next set of cookies ready to go in the oven.
“I know….so wait, what song would you have for that King Pyrus guy?”
“Chicken dance song.”
“I take him as serious as that song.”
“Harsh...what about his monsters in packs?”
“Terror Time by Skycycle.”
“Damn….when the monsters have a better song…”
“By the way...I just thought of yours back then….Logos Naki World...from Hellsing.”
“Yeah! That is just awesome….”
“You realize that was when you were a villain, right?”
“So what about now? If we were to...oh….practice fight?”
“Beezelboss from Tenacious D.”
“I accept that full heartly…..so wanna have a practice fight? We can have it tomorrow if you finish your baking tonight.” Luc smiled as Katt chuckled
“Sure….just try not to run away if i blast ya again.” Katt said with a snarky grin across her face.
“Oh! Strong words from a Sailor Moon copycat...im game if you are.”
